Tern builds bikes with an eye to changing the world. Or at least the way that folks get around. Tern bikes bring together all the things people need to drive less and ride more.
Tern was named after a small, lightweight bird that mates for life and holds the world record for the longest migration.
A commitment to sustainability is central to Tern. They design their bikes to be serviceable rather than land-fillable. And they are constantly searching for ways to reduce their impact, like minimizing packaging, specifying recycled cardboard, and reducing use of harmful chemicals like chromium.
One of Tern's favorite mottos: Aim high, then aim higher. Tern designs products with an eye towards function and long-lasting durability. They don’t mind that they also get recognition from top international design & innovation awards.
At home, Tern enable their own employees to bike to work with free bicycles, showers, and changing rooms. Further afield, Tern partners with municipal transit authorities to make it easier to carry bikes on public transportation. And they actively participate in cycling associations to support people who want to use bicycles as a healthier, greener form of transportation.
Tern chose to blaze new trails to bring you features that that make everyday biking more convenient and comfortable. Sometimes, that requires a little help from their friends.
The Tern GSD is the most anticipated electric cargo bike on the planet.
